After Boris Johnson’s scandal-prompting honours list, Liz Truss is readying her own resignation list. This would see those behind Truss’s 49-day premiership handed a job-for-life in parliament.

If Liz Truss is allowed a resignation honours list that packs the heaving Lords with even more peers, it will lay bare that there is no bar too low when it comes to who is given a job-for-life in Parliament.

It’s time to scrap this rotten system and replace the unelected Lords with a smaller elected chamber where the people of this country, not former prime ministers, choose who shape the laws we all live under.
